    Exterior color match with Cocoa

    Has anyone seen Midnight Blue or Basalt Black with Cocoa interior on a coupe? Any opinions on which would be a better match would be appreciated.

    Re: Exterior color match with Cocoa

    The closest thing to that I can recall is Lapis and natural brown (I think!)...IIRC, Matt the Car Nut from here in Texas had that combo for his mom...and it was really beautiful.

    From what I've seen?... Blue. Cocoa needs (and goes with) colors better than gray shades. Except GT Silver which has a little color in it. GT Silver & Cocoa look great. IMO.

    Re: Exterior color match with Cocoa

    Agreed, GT Silver or Arctic Silver and Cocoa are great combinations. I saw Atlas Grey and Cocoa and did not like it. Should've taken a picture.

    looks great with Basalt

    I vaccilated between Basalt/cocoa and Atlas/2 tone black-grey. I liked the cocoa interior best, but the Atlas exterior won. I took a 3'x3' swatch of cocoa and laid it all over a Basalt coupe - it was stunning. Cocoa is probably best with GT silver, but looks pretty good with seal and, of course, white.

    ...and I concur, Atlas and cocoa is not a good combo

    Re: looks great with Basalt

    GT Silver/cocoa

    Re: Exterior color match with Cocoa

    Hey! I've got Atlas and Cocao and like it.

    Subtle - but no clash IMHO - although Seal Grey (with the hint of brown rather than blue in Atlas) would also be good IMHO. White may not be bad, I reckon - kind of coffee and cream look...

    Each to his own, though. I'll post a few pics later tonight when I finally drag myself home from the office. I washed the car yesterday, so I took a few photos before putting her back to bed.

    SoS.

    Re: Exterior color match with Cocoa

    No insults intended! In my eye the bluish tinge of the Atlas doesn't do the Cocoa justice. Oddly, there was a Speed Yellow/Cocoa C4S cab parked in Newport Beach CA yesterday that was really quite attractive - I think it had a cocoa top too, but it was down.

    Re: Exterior color match with Cocoa

    I think a white exterior would go well with cocoa...

    Rotten banana?

    Seal, GT Silver, Slate, and White all look great with Cocoa! I think the greens would probably work, but I haven't seen many greens (Dark Olive Metallic/Cocoa, anyone?) And, if you like rotting fruit, Speed Yellow.

    Re: Exterior color match with Cocoa

    Here's some pics of my Atlas 'S. Quite clean for a change - although a bit blurred here. Unfortunately interior not so visible. But, just imagine a very dark and understated brown through the tinted glass...

    And another:

    Annnnnnnd finally:

    Re: Exterior color match with Cocoa

    OK one more...

    Re: Exterior color match with Cocoa

    No offense intendend, of course. It just goes to show you that it is hard to ask for one's opinion on a purely subjective topic. Hell, my last car was Speed Yellow, so what does that tell you about my color choices?

    Cocoa interior: white, slate grey, green, or go with one of the Cayenne gold-like colors as a special paint job. The silvers and other greys, while beautiful, need a black interior; they don't "match" with the cocoa brown.

    Re: Exterior color match with Cocoa

    I think atlas with cocoa looks fine, if not even quite classy... think darker shades whilst not highlighting the cocoa colour suits it perfectly IMO.

    Re: Exterior color match with Cocoa

    No offense taken. Key thing is to be happy with your own selection.... and if you end up with a 997, you should be - whatever the colour!

    SoS.

    Re: Exterior color match with Cocoa

    Porsche showed a seal grey/cocoa 4S cab at the Geneva show. Looked very good...
